Head coach: Kyle Krauss, sixth season

2016 record: 18-12 (5-3 Southwest, second)

Returning starters: Five

Top players: OH Charlie Pollnow (Sr.), OH Will Hafen (Sr.), S Trevor Papock (Jr.), LIB Julian Uy (Jr.)

Outlook: The Gaels bring back five starters from a team that finished second in the Southwest League last season.

“Having five returning starters, along with our setter who is now in his third year of varsity along with club, gives me a very positive outlook on this season,” Krauss said. “As always, our goal is to win all of our tournaments and our first state championship for Bishop Gorman.

“This group has been my most dedicated from top to bottom that I’ve ever coached and has helped create a great culture for this sport at Bishop Gorman. I’m very excited to see what these young men do this season and know they will be putting in the work to be the best they can become.”
